Plant Information
Speckled leaf lettuce made its way to the U.S. via the Netherlands and then Canada in the very tail end of the 18th century. And are we glad it did! This Amish loose-leaf variety has gorgeous, apple-green leaves that are speckled with flecks of deep red, making it a stellar example of how a lettuce can really beautify a garden, and later your favorite salads. Its sweet, buttery taste is amazing too. The heads are small in size so the leaves stay petite and sweet, and you can pick leaves as you need them or harvest the whole head at once. For optimal freshness and flavor, pick your leaves in the morning when they're cool, crisp, and full of moisture.
